Jumble Post

For the 4th, we didn't do much. Since we got back from our vacation, Kenny has been working, I have been working with him and outside, and also trying to get back into the swing of non-vacation life. Like paying bills. Yick.

We worked together yesterday for about 4 hours, then came home and relaxed. Kenny fell asleep on the couch and I hosed down our new (to us) patio table & chairs so we could have dinner on our new patio for the first time!! I can't even tell you how long I've been waiting to have this patio, and then once I got it, the patio table. It's finally here!!! Now Kenny is shopping for an umbrella for it, but I love it even without one! I grilled chicken and woke him up to eat dinner awesome!! We stayed outside for the rest of the evening. I was reading the rest of my book (it was one of those you CANNOT put down even with 100 pages left) and he mowed and weedwacked and the dog ran around between us. It was so relaxing. Then we sat on the front porch and watched fireworks in the surrounding towns (cities??). I think we saw 3 different displays from our porch!! This was the dog's first experience with fireworks, wasn't sure what to expect. She was SUPER curious, her head snapped every which way with all the lights and booms. She loved it. Then some neighbors on both sides had sparklers going...she was in heaven watching it all. I fell asleep watching TV while Kenny was working on the computer, a nightly ritual around here. Nothing beats that!

Today I have been a work horse. The last couple of days the closets around here have been driving me crazy. So I started in on one, it turned into another, and another, and then the whole house, and I'm just about done now. I'm telling you, when I'm in the mood, it hits me hard, and watch out because everything ends up in the trash or in someone else's hands!! Kenny walked into the spare bedroom which I had just cleaned, closet included, and it was TRASHED before, and his jaw dropped. He said, "This would have taken me all day and it took you an hour?" All I could think was, "Yes dear, this is what happens when you don't have ADD." But I didn't say it. I think all men are ADD when it comes to cleaning. I just sleep better with a clean house. I can't start a project or get something out without first cleaning things. I've just always been like that. It's probably nutty, but I can't help it!

I love eating outside!! My table umbrella died in the last storm but it lasted over 2 years...I don't know if you have Garden Ridge stores there or not, but they have the best prices on those umbrellas if you want a bargain and not the fancy ones.
